Easter Dresses

I love this time of year! The weather is getting warmer; the colors are getting brighter; and we are getting busier! Also, everyone, in general, is in a better mood once the winter season comes to an end. People are walking around Boston looking all shiny and brand-new. It’s amazing how some warm weather can really have such a positive affect on one’s mood. 
With spring comes Easter, and I really love this holiday! Not only for the true meaning behind the celebration, but it also marks the beginning of a new chapter. I can remember as a little girl getting excited to wear my new, Easter dress every spring, because it was such a happy, special time. Now as a thirty year old woman, wife, and mother, I am proud to say that nothing has changed! 
I put together a compilation of five dresses that I love for not only Easter, but also the whole spring season. I wanted to share dresses that were appropriate and varied in color, style, and price point. I love all five of these dresses, but if I had to pick a favorite, it would be the sea foam green.

Bow-Back Shift

Today, I wanted to share a fun, spring dress that would be perfect for a date, night out with your friends, or bachelorette party. This red, coral color has been one of my favorites for a while now. I own many things in this color from dresses to tops to pants, and every time I see something new, I have to check it out. So, when I saw this dress at Anthropologie, I had to buy it!
This dress is so cute, and I love the fabric! It’s a nice, thick fabric that is very flattering and forgiving. Also, the bow in the back is something that really drew me to the dress. I can’t really wear dresses that have interesting backs, because I always need to wear a bra. But, this one worked, because the bow was so well-placed!

I also really wanted this dress, because I thought it would go really well with my blue, tassel earrings. I am often buying clothes to match my accessories, because I love them so much! These earrings are so fun, and go with so many different styles. You’ll be seeing a lot of these over the coming months. I also have them in pink!

Transitioning to Spring

This is my first post in over a week, and I am a little embarrassed! I had to travel to South Florida for work, and I just couldn’t find the time to tend to my blog. Since today is the first day of spring, I wanted to share a post on transitioning work wear from winter to spring by introducing little pops of color. This black sheath is a known favorite of mine by now, but, here, I have it dressed up for spring. This teal necklace from BaubleBar is the perfect length, and it comes in several other colors, including mint, periwinkle, and a deep purple. I liked the teal best, because it goes well with my eyes and so many other colors.

Now that it is officially spring, I’ll start wearing brighter colors both to work and on the weekends. Weekend wear is much more fun and colorful, but I now, at thirty, feel much more comfortable adding color in at the office, too. I wouldn’t wear it to a big meeting, however, especially with clients, but on a regular, office day, I’ll add it in to my wardrobe.

I used to never wear bright colors in the office. I wouldn’t even paint my nails a non-neutral color or wear a non-neutral lipstick, because I thought it was unprofessional. I work in finance, which can be a more conservative, old-fashioned industry as far as apparel is concerned. Suits are often the norm, and traditional wear is often best. I had always heard and read that as a business professional, you should only wear black, navy, or grey suits with black, patent leather shoes and a nice watch, and carry a simple, black bag.

Over the years, I think this has changed a little. More firms are now business casual during the week, and I see more men and women wearing more color. I think some of this influence comes from the younger workers in the office, who are a little less traditional and like to dress a little more comfortably. I used to disagree with the new trend, but as time goes on, I like the change, and look forward to sharing my new, colorful take on office style!
